One of my favorites and Jerry's is in good voice here and the whole show. In some ways. The old man's never been the same again, Maybe but he sure as hell kept on keepin on.

It nay not be a popular choice but I tend to favor Fall 72 and 77 to earlier in 72 or 77.

With 72 it is kinda an end of an era with Pig but the start of Keith's major contribution to the band. (As much as I champion Donna Jean she is not a major factor in the mix on the European Tour) but as the French proclaim
Viva the difference! mind blowing jams on tunes like Playin' , Other One and some of Pig's Second Set standards. Also I find many of the 1st sets during Europe 72 are very well put together.especially good is the rotation between Jerry Bob and Ron they really bring the tunes.
To me Veneta is the ultimate show both for vibe and the show sizzles
(Naked guy on the pole not so much)
I still have much late 72 to explore as I went HEAD first into 73 before all else.
How can you go wrong all the way to early 74?
Phil has to be taken into account as well.

Just listening to the Jerry led barn burner Truckin into Nobodies fault
A little bit of sound quality slip but very raw primal
and as i write that the full soundboard kicks in again.
Cool to hear Aiko so late in the show like that
and counter intuitive to something like the crowd pleasing,
sh-t kicking RxR blues from 71 in Texas
And I already remember the unique transition coming up for
Sugar Magnolia
Drummers have to really shift gears.
That jam leading to Sunshine Daydream
is probably as close as I have gotten to heaven
before closing my eyes to see.

Here is some C& W for ya brother!

Thanks for the great link
She never spoke Spanish to me.
A great album and being in Austin then we saw him and Hancock and all before they broke in. When you see a band or musician or even a minor league baseball player before they make it creates a closeness to them so when they do well, we feel good about it.

I remembered your thoughts on some tune placements while listening to Tennessee Jed like here is set two, hopping version too.

My thoughts on 72 don't stand the test of Pigpen I agree, They were at their Dead best before he passed.
